Time-traveler,

I cut most of my stuff apart, it makes for a better scan and ultimately much better OCR when creating full-text versions.
99% of the stuff I put up was from my book collection, or lately I am buying stuff real cheap from ebay. I have some ps and pm editions and will be cutting those apart after scanning the spine and both covers. I also have a large collection of installation, service and operation manuals going back to the 1920's which I am scanning in. They usually get the same traetment as the pulps.

I decided to do that, cut the binding, after seeing your book scan.

its a great read, the earliest short story SiFi I have ever read.

Time Traveler,

Yes I had to read most of it, took a while to finish it. The next ones I will try to do without reading them. I have several hundre puls going back to the 1920's. Intereting stuff in some of them; almost all not under copyright.
